On Mother’s Day, Paul and I spent some time on the porch, with reporter Dan Geringer. We talked about the many surprises and ongoing joys of curating and presenting Alice’s art. Photographer Steve Falk arrived with his camera gear and lighting equipment, and Paul helped as the “Gobo” — holding a blanket to “go between” the framed art and the windows — to reduce reflective glare from the framed watercolors. Ultimately, they used the photo of me standing beside an oil painting — the only portrait of me that my mother formally completed.
